Registering Your Child for Primary 1 for August 2015
East Renfrewshire Council has set up one week when you should register your son or daughter at your local primary school for school education in East Renfrewshire. You must register at your catchment school, even if you intend to make a placing request to another school or to defer your place and keep your son or daughter at home for another year.
If you intend to educate your child privately or at home you should still register at your local catchment school.
You may choose to enrol your son or daughter in either the local denominational or local non denominational school. This choice will determine the secondary school to which your child will transfer.
If he or she is aged five between 1 March 2015 and the end of February 2016 you should go along to the primary school between 1.30 and 3.30 any day during the week of Monday 12 January to Friday 16 January 2015.
You should bring your son or daughter’s birth certificate, your child benefit statement, a copy of your current council tax notice, and mortgage statement or rental agreement. The school can also accept, Driving Licence, Utility Bill or Bank Statement if the child benefit statement is unavailable.
